I personally am partial to Hawke Endurance optics.  HOWEVER -  I am looking at one of two scopes for my daughters 308 for deer hunting. 

The two scopes i am looking are the VORTEX CROSSFIRE II and the BUSHNELL PRIME
both 3-9x40
both have illuminated dot reticles that appear to be near identical 
both have limited lifetime warranty's - hope never to use the warranty on either

Which scope has better glass, more rugged and the better choice?  I know nothing of these two scopes first hand.   

Thank you

Honestly, I did not think either one of them was all that impressive for the money.

If I were looking for budget hunting scope, I'd be looking for one of these:
